CSS081007:030559+054715 was discovered by the Catalina Real-time Transient Survey. Optical spectroscopy revealed a multi-peaked Ha emission line profile with radial velocities exceeding 1500 km/s, as well as strong Ne emission, suggestive of a neon nova. We monitored the source extensively with the Swift satellite, obtaining a unique dataset spanning 270 days in the soft X-ray and UV bands. The data reveal a soft, blackbody-like spectrum with a temperature around 55 eV (though dependent on the modelling), variable X-ray and UV light curves with a 1.77 day period in both the X-ray and UV bands, a longer timescale modulation of similar to 50 days, followed by a slowly declining trend in the soft X-ray and UV flux. We highlight the Swift observations and their implications for the SSS nature of this object. (C) 2010 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim


Observations of the unidentified TeV gamma-ray source TeV J2032+4130 with the Whipple Observatory 10 m telescope
Konopelko, A.; et. al. (IOP Publishing, 2007-04-01)
We report on observations of the sky region around the unidentified TeV gamma-ray source (TeV J2032+ 4130) carried out with the Whipple Observatory 10 m atmospheric Cerenkov telescope for a total of 65.5 hr between 2003 and 2005. The standard two-dimensional analysis developed by the Whipple collaboration for a stand-alone telescope reveals an excess in the field of view at a pretrial significance level of 6.1 sigma. The measured position of this excess is alpha = 20(h)32(m)27(s), delta = 41 degrees 39'17" ...
Reconstructed density and velocity fields from the 2MASS Redshift Survey
Erdogdu, Pirin; Lahav, Ofer; Huchra, John P.; Colless, Matthew; Cutri, Roc M.; Falco, Emilio; George, Teddy; Jarrett, Thomas; Jones, D. Heath; Macri, Lucas M.; Mader, Jeff; Martimbeau, Nathalie; Pahre, Michael A.; Parker, Quentin A.; Rassat, Anaid; Saunders, Will (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2006-11-21)
W We present the reconstructed real-space density and the predicted velocity fields from the Two-Micron All-Sky Redshift Survey (2MRS). The 2MRS is the densest all-sky redshift survey to date and includes about 23 200 galaxies with extinction-corrected magnitudes brighter than K-s = 11.25. Our method is based on the expansion of these fields in Fourier-Bessel functions. Within this framework, the linear redshift distortions only affect the density field in the radial direction and can easily be deconvolved ...
RXTE and Swift Observations of SWIFT J0513.4-6547
Sahiner, S.; Serim, Muhammed Miraç; Baykal, Altan; İNAM, SITKI ÇAĞDAŞ (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2016-02-11)
We present timing and spectral analysis of Swift-XRT (X-ray Telescope) and RXTE-PCA (Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer-proportional Counter Array) observations of the transient Be/X-ray pulsar SWIFT J0513.4-6547 during its outburst in 2009 and its rebrightening in 2014. From 2009 observations, short-term spin-up rate of the source after the peak of the outburst is found to have about half of the value measured at the peak of the outburst by Coe et al. When the source is quiescent between 2009 and 2014, average sp...
Global Site Selection for Astronomy
AKSAKER, NAZIM; Yerli, Sinan Kaan; Erdogan, M. A.; Kurt, Z.; Kaba, K.; Bayazit, M.; YEŞİLYAPRAK, Cahit (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2020-03-01)
A global site selection for astronomy was performed with 1 km spatial resolution (similar to 1 gigapixel in size) using long-term and up-to-date datasets to classify the entire terrestrial surface of the Earth. Satellite instruments are used to get the following datasets of geographical information system (GIS) layers: cloud coverage, digital elevation model, artificial light, precipitable water vapour, aerosol optical depth, wind speed, and land use and land cover. A multi-criteria decision analysis (MCDA)...
Frequency-resolved spectroscopy of XB1323-619 using XMM-Newton data: detection of a reflection region in the disc
Balman, Şölen (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2010-09-21)
We present the frequency-resolved energy spectra (FRS) of the low-mass X-ray binary dipper XB1323-619 during persistent emission in four different frequency bands using an archival XMM-Newton observation. FRS method helps to probe the inner zones of an accretion disc. XB1323-619 is an Atoll source and a type-I burster. We find that the FRS is well described by a single blackbody component with kT in a range 1.0-1.4 keV responsible for the source variability in the frequency ranges of 0.002-0.04 and 0.07-0.3...
